We tried out the freezer paper stencil idea on knits last week, with success! This time we cut out the stencil using mylar (thin but sturdy plastic material) so that it could be reused. The drawback to mylar is that it won't adhere to the fabric. I used a bit of glue stick to tack it down, and then was as careful as I could be to avoid getting paint under the edges of the stencil. I also learned that you can use scotch tape to add in little details, like the eye on this 'animal.' The lettering and word bubble were hand painted since stenciling thin lines is kind of a pain. Working on knits is not as nice as woven fabric because it tends to warp more with the moisture in the paint, and the paint stiffened the fabric more than the knit. All in all, a fun project and the recipient of the t-shirt was very pleased.
